My carry gun is a Glock 19. My 1911A1 is setup with Match sights, and is too heavy, too big and carries too few rounds for CCW. I've carried 1911A1's and M9 Beretta's for living, and still, I prefer the Glock for a CCW gun. Simple controls are hard to screw up when it comes time to save yourself.

I guess this makes me a switch hitter (may have to go see "Humpback Mountain" after this ). I carry both Glocks and 1911 style (Para-Ord P-14) depending on my mood, for IWB the 1911 platform is more comfortable for me and I feel they hide better in that carry mode and I take the P-14 when I feel the threat level is higher than day to day. For concealed carry in the Glock family I do defiantly prefer the G-19, big enough to get a hold of, carries enough ammo to get the job done, small enough to conceal.
For an all round Glock the 19 is tough to beat, I seem to recall reading somewhere that the 19 is/was the best selling model a couple years ago, the mid size .40 may have equaled or passed it by now, but used 19s should not be too difficult to find at reasonable prices.

I love my combat tupperware and feel not the slightest bit "lesser armed" when carrying my M27. Dishwasher safe, too.

Wow, I'm glad we're all friends here! I'd hate to make this many armed people mad! LOL Well we are looking at a Glock 19, as per the advice received. Thanks guys! I Think!!! IT's used and we'll see if we can get together on the price. I told my son we'd add on to the dog house and he could keep it out there but the dog threatened to leave. JOKING, I"m just joking Glock people!!

Yes, they did everything asked of them and I don't mean to put Glocks down. The bottom line is that they are dependable, accurate, reliable and extremely durable handguns. I would feel adequately armed with one under any circumstances.

I also don't like the trigger/safety system in a Glock. For an inexperienced shooter who hasn't learned trigger finger control, they can be dangerous. I have read and heard of more ND's with Glocks than any other handgun. That is a user induced malfunction, not anything to do with the gun itself.
On a semi-auto I prefer an external safety of some kind. I feel that JMB's 1911 design is the best self-defense package ever created.
Once again, that's a personal choice, not any thing against Gaston's design.
